The Maritime Holdings Group is the Manager of the Peace Boat.
Peace Boat is a Japan-based international non-governmental and non-profit organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment.
Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a passenger ship that travels the world on peace voyages. The ship creates a neutral, mobile space and enables people to engage across borders in dialogue and mutual cooperation at sea, and in the ports that we visit.
A Peace Boat delegation at the 21 st session of the Paris Climate Change Conference on December 3rd, 2015 introduced the Ecoship Project, which will build the world’s greenest cruise ship to carry out the Peace Boat voyages from 2020.
The Ecoship project will take the organization to the next level by building a ship that will minimize environmental impact to an extent that surpasses the current best-in- practice.
In addition, the ship’s design, with its iconic hull, inspired by the humpback whale, and its unmistakable solar panel-covered sail masts, will be a highly visible demonstration of sustainability in action in every port that she visits.
